Frank Collymore Hall

The Frank Collymore Hall is named after Frank Collymore and is located in the complex of the Central Bank of Barbados on the outskirts of the island's capital city, Bridgetown. It is the home of the Sir Winston Scott Memorial Lecture, which is a lecture sponsored by the Central Bank of Barbados in memory of Barbados' first native Governor General, Sir Winston Scott. It is also the home of the finals for the National Cultural Festival of Creative Arts (NIFCA) which is held annually in November.


The Hall opened its doors to the public of Barbados in 1986 with a spectacular week of cultural activities labelled "City Nights". These cultural presentations comprised of dance, gospel, calypso, folk, the classics and jazz. The establishment of the Hall came about as a result of a need for a venue that provides high quality music, dance and drama.


The entrance of Frank Collymore Hall is graced with a bronze bust of the man Frank Collymore (1893-1980) himself who was also knowned to Barbados as 'Colly'. This work of art was sculpted by the late Karl Broodhagan, who was a local sculptor. The Frank Collymore Hall has a seating capacity of approximately five hundred (500) and possesses a nine-foot Steinway Orchestral Concert Grand Piano.
